Sometimes travel is about new and different adventures. Sometimes it is about repeating the most boring or ridiculous habits. And, when done right, it is often a great blend of both. We close out this week’s episode with some discussion of travel souvenirs that we’re constantly collecting, or at least that we did back when we traveled more.
The air travel industry is seeing policy changes at an incredible pace, often flipflopping between opposing positions with minimal warning. We’re just trying to keep up…
BER is open and a whale caught a runaway train. Both of those things really happened.
A loyalty points scheme not worth buying in to and another that surprisingly is. Plus an airline disappears, a very long flight returns, and lots more!
Earnings season is back, with billions burned and little in the way of optimism for the industry. But traffic continues to increase and route networks adjust, with airlines trying to capture whatever bits of the market they can.
Booking inaugural routes is almost as fun as flying them, right?? Plus A321Ts parked, AirAsia Japan dying and United’s November growth plans.
No, that’s not a typo. We’re mourning the loss of the Convair 580s from commercial service, now slated for next year, among many other things in this week’s episode.
We’re back in the sky! Also, new doors, routes, snacks, and planes headed to storage.
Joint ventures are failing but does that mean the underlying businesses are screwed? And some serious long-haul route expansion coming, in theory, in the next 9ish months. Plus BER in trouble and the 787’s tail is a mess.
Change fees, jet packs, massive corruption and a fun new private plane. C’mon in and learn a bit in this week’s show!
